My understanding is that any lift will give you the same clearance for tires but spacers do not give you more flex just clearance not sure though. Everyone says springs are better for off-road capabilities.

Spacers are purely for clearance. Purely for the fact that you didn't lengthen the spring so it can't flex any more than before. I mean it is still the same spring. I installed the teraflex 1.5" spacer kit. 2" front 1" rear with new rear sway bar links. Like $130 and some change. It leveled it and looks great. I did it on a 14' Sahara. And it didn't change on road performance one bit. With the proper back spacing you can run a 35" on a stock jk and not rub. A 1.5" spacer lift won't make that much of a difference. I wouldn't recommend running any larger than a 35" with that setup. And make sure if you go much wider to get a different wheel with proper back spacing.
